“I have chosen Erasmus University Rotterdam to do my research because of its solid reputation and strong focus on top quality international research. Research has always been an international endeavour and this is even truer in the 21st century. Good research flourishes in an international setting where the best ideas are studied by excellent researchers irrespective of their gender and background. Erasmus University Rotterdam provides such an environment in a unique Dutch-European but yet global manner. 

The strong research focus is also the foundation for the curricula that students from all over the world follow. Discussions between lecturers and future young professionals, eager to combine new skills and knowledge with their unique personal perspective, prepare Erasmus University students for the business world.

The quality-focussed mindset laid out, amongst others, by Tinbergen, the first ever Nobel Prize winner in Economics really gives me the feeling that I am working on the Mainport of Knowledge in the Mainport of Europe”.
